Jenni Kayne Eco Wear

jenni kayne eco sweatpant, jenni kayne boucle half-zip

As if I didn't love Jenni Kayne enough, they went ahead and make these perfect pieces, made for life but also for lounging. Plus the sweatpants are made of recycled fibers, truly the way to my heart. I rush to put these comfy eco sweatpants on every time I get home (tbh I've also ran many an errand in them).

But this boucle half-zip might be my favorite piece of the season. Super soft and luxe-feeling, but above all so versatile and the ideal layering piece during the cold winter months.

For lack of a better term, I am obsessed.

Wearing the Zodiac

I'm a total astrology enthusiast. I'm fascinated by how the zodiac is quite often right on the nose when defining people's personalities, especially when digging deeper into rising and moon signs.

I personally very much associate to all of my star signs—taurus sun, scorpio rising, capricorn moon—and will take any occasion I can to discuss horoscopes and charts, both my own and those of others. I probably follow too many astrology meme accounts on Instagram and sometimes will judge one's behavior (including my own) based on their sign (sorry not sorry).

All this to say that when I found this gorge blouse with illustrations of all the zodiac signs at Sézane, I snatched it right up and wasted no time putting together a muted yet loud getup that reveals my own astrological identity: simple and luxe (taurus), statement-making and enigmatic (scorpio), and profesh, big biz vibes (capricorn).

Jenni Kayne's Essentials

Jenni Kayne Atlas Sweater, Jenni Kayne Bucket bag, Helene Heath

I'm going strong with all the beautiful Jenni Kayne piece I've received from the brand since the fall (see September and October) and I continue to be so happy to be an ambassador and represent her beautiful, luxe, easy living basics.

This month is all about cozy essentials and this beauty of an emerald knit is as wonderful as it gets. Not only is the color super rich and apropos for the season, but the fit and texture is everything I want on my body when the cold months hit.

Now about this gorge bucket bag. It's the ideal size and fits my life (aka what I carry around with me every day) in the chicest, sleekest way.

Clean Beauty at CVS

This post is in partnership with CVS because they're looking to bring awareness to something that is near and dear to my personal values and convictions: clean beauty.

If you follow me on Instagram (you should, it's fun there!), then you're well aware of my proclivities for skincare, particularly my holistic approach and the importance I award to clean beauty products. I'm admittedly kind of a beauty snob knowing that too many big companies fail us on the ingredient front.

I try to be very mindful of what products I use and what's in them, along with which brands I endorse and what their practices are.

I know that clean beauty can seem daunting, unattainable, or even sometimes elitist. Most of the category sits at a higher price point, which is really unfair to consumers. It's crazy to me that not everyone can access high-quality skincare that's free of certain chemicals.

This is where CVS comes in—it's my local pharmacy btw, I go in there about once a week to pick things up, it's truly the best. And I love them even more now that I know how committed they are to making clean beauty accessible to everyone by carrying a huge range of brands with skincare lines that you can feel good about putting on your largest organ (your skin) every single day.

I'm also incredibly pleased to let you know that CVS has pledged to remove parabens and phthalates from hundreds of store brand beauty and personal care products by 2020. How's that for monumental?

In the meantime, look for the green clean sticker on the CVS Health and Beauty 360 products that says "Paraben and Phthalate Free" to ensure you're getting the good stuff, and keep reading to see some of my personal favorites.

____________

The Burt's Bees products are always standouts, here we have the cuticle wax ('tis the season! It's also great for dry elbows btw) and the cleansing oil. I loveeee cleansing oils.

The Pixi Glow Tonic is also an all-time fav. It didn't get its cult status for nothing—this guy is a real superstar. It's an acid exfoliant that will clear your skin and straight up make you glow.

The Thayers Witch Hazel is another amazing cult classic — a super soothing toner with healing properties.

Now for maybe my favorite category — masks. CVS has a ton of clean options for individual sheet masks that are totally clutch for traveling.

Below I have the Beauty 360 Purifying Grapefruit & Charcoal mask and the Beauty 360 Plumping mask, which are both fantastic.

Also awesome for travel are the Beauty 360 Cleansing Towelettes and the Charcoal Pore Strips (perhaps the most satisfying skincare item, like, ever).

There are so many awesome clean beauty options at CVS, all at an accessible price point and for a range of solutions. It makes me so happy to finally see this category being democratized — anyone can now have access to products that are free from these chemicals..

Time to take a field trip to CVS :)

Jenni Kayne Blazer

Jenni Kayne Blazer

My go-to piece for literally any outfit is a blazer. Whether it's to dress up, to keep things casual, or to look professional, no other piece rivals the almighty blazer.

I probably wear one every day of the week, tbh. I have some oversized versions, menswear iterations, and I just added to my collection with this beautifully tailored number by Jenni Kayne.

It's the most versatile item of clothing you'll ever own and a no-brainer addition to any wardrobe, trust.

I mentioned last month that I'm a Jenni Kayne ambassador, so I have a code you can use to get 20% off your order: Helene20

Shop the blazer and never look back!

Basic but Make it Jazzy

There's truly nothing like a uniform of perfectly cut denim and a plush knit sweater when the weather starts cooling down. There's no going wrong with a combo that's comprised of two items like this.

Add a jazzy shoe, a statement bag, and some neck bling, and you've got yourself a fail-proof seasonal outfit.

Now about these jeans: they're my absolute favorite pair at the moment. Not only is the quality tangible, but they literally fit like a glove.

I would *highly* recommend investing in a pair.

Jenni Kayne's Perfect Fall Knits

Jenni Kayne discount code,Jenni Kayne Knit sweater, Jenni Kayne sweater dress, Helene Heath

I've got some exciting things to discuss.

One, autumn has officially arrived: cue coziness, red wine, cashmere, and pumpkin spice for the enthusiasts (me, I confess).

And two, as of this month, I became a Jenni Kayne ambassador, which I'm so thrilled about. I've been a fan of the brand for many many years, and I'm really excited to introduce it to you guys if it's not already on your radar.

They make the most amazing elevated basics that feel as luxe as they are comfy, and their quality bar is super high, but their prices are also reasonable. Jenni Kayne is heaven!

I'm wearing two of their fall pieces here:

◦ A sumptuously oversized knit in a beautiful olive color.

◦ A gorge sleeveless sweater dress in camel, probably one of the most bougie shades that comes to mind.

They're both ideal layering pieces as we transition from warm to cool weather, and they'll be perfect once it gets really cold, too.
